Let's have the best #Wikimedia fundraiser possible IV

This years fundraiser is effective. A lot of time and effort has gone into getting it right and it shows. Geolocation is used to identify where people are from so that the appropriate message gets out. This is a good thing; it helps our chapters to get our message out.

Still... there is one obvious thing that can be done to optimise our fundraising operation: When in Rome ask donations in the currency of the Romans. This means that you ask in India for rupees and in Indonesia for rupiahs.

My bet is that asking for donations in the local currency will more then double the number of donations. Getting it right this year will have an effect in the next year as well.


When you use Chrome as your browser, you may want to consider installing this extension.. it is fun, but I doubt that it will gain us more donations
Thanks,
